The super sensitive Easi-Vent valve gives superior venting for easy feeding and less risk of baby taking in air.
Designed to be held in the most natural position during feeding, the compact shape of Closer to Nature bottles allows baby to be closer to you.
For total reassurance, all of our products are free from Bisphenol A (BPA).
Where should the Easi-Vent valve be when feeding my baby?
We recommend the valve to be at the top, near baby's nose.
Can I put bottles and teats in the dishwasher?
Absolutely, our bottles and teats are dishwasher safe when placed on the top shelf.
When using a dishwasher, be sure not to put baby bottles and teats in with strong coloured or oily food as the colour and residue from the food can transfer. We also advise that you sterilise the bottles and teats in Closer to Nature sterilisers after washing, before use.
Why is the teat collapsing when my baby is feeding?
The Closer to Nature Easi-vent Teat is very sensitive as it is made of specially designed silicone material which can sometimes stick the slits together when not used for periods of time. This is perfectly natural. If this occurs, you can reopen the slit at the tip of the tent like valve by gently manipulating the valve between your finger and thumb until you see the slit open. This allows the air to flow into the bottle, preventing the teat from collapsing.
The Closer to Nature Advanced Comfort Bottle's round dome valve, which fits onto the bottom of the venting tube is also very sensitive as it is made of specially designed silicone material. This can also stick together at times when not used for periods of time. To ensure the slit in the dome valve is open before use, flush through with water, gently manipulating the valve between your finger and thumb until you see the slit re-open.
Another point to note is that your little one may want more milk than they are able to get. Try either a variflow teat or the next flow stage teat.
